Heather Pregger won First Place, Abstract, Large at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019 with her abstract version of a tiger's eye gemstone. In Tiger's Eye (50" x 72.5") she used strips of fabric to take her design to the "microscopic" level.

Heather's statement: "Tiger's Eye is a popular and attractive gemstone, usually metamorphic, composed of quartz in a finely fibrous form. Under the microscope, you can see the finely textured quartz and altered amphibole fibers." 

Tiger's Eye is available for sale on her website, click here.
